    Standards
    ASTM-B-209 QQ-A-250/2

    Principal Design Features
    3003 Aluminum is alloyed with 1.20% manganese, which increases the strength of 3003 over commercially pure aluminum (1100 series). 3003 has excellent workability, weldability and good corrosion resistance. It is used for drawing, forming, spinning, fuel tanks, sheet metal works and other applications that require moderate strength for aluminum with good weldability. H14 designates the temper and means that 3003 has been strain hardened and partially annealed. In this condition, 3003 can be easily formed. Embossing or debossing 3003 in this temper should not strain or crack the aluminum.

    Applications
    3003-H14 is widely used for stampings, spun and drawn parts and products, cooking utensils, chemical equipment, builder’s hardware, storage tanks, truck and trailer components, mail boxes, cabinets, fan blades, awnings, siding, kitchen equipment, decorative trim, architectural uses, signage applications, etc. Where greater strength is required, consider 5052-H32. 3003-H224 is a designation for a variety of tread designs for tread plate, this product is often used for walk ways, bump zones trailer decks etc.

    Machinability
    Machinability for 3003-H14 is considered good.

    Forming
    Good.

    Welding
    3003-H14 is readily welded using common welding techniques.

    Heat Treatment

    Principal Design Features
    Magnesium is the primary alloying agent in the 5052 series and is one of the most effective and widely used alloying elements for aluminum. Alloys in this series possess moderate to high strength characteristics, as well as good weldablilityand resistance to corrosion in the marine environment. Because of this, aluminum-magnesium alloys are widely used in building and construction, storage tanks, pressure vessels and marine applications. Examples of common alloy applications include: 5052 in electronics, 5083/5086 in marine applications, anodized 5005 sheet for architectural applications and 5182 makes the aluminum beverage can lid.

    5454 Aluminum Alloy is an alloy in the wrought aluminum -magnesium family (5000 or 5xxx series). It is closely related to 5154 Aluminum Alloy. As an aluminum -magnesium alloy, it combines moderate-to-high strength with excellent weldability. Like 5154, 5454 aluminum is commonly used in welded structures such as pressure vessels and ships. As a wrought alloy, it can be formed by rolling, extrusion, and forging (although forging is not common), but not casting. It be cold worked to produce tempers with a higher strength but a lower ductility. It is generally not clad.

    5456 Aluminum Alloy is an alloy in the wrought aluminum-magnesium family (5000 or 5xxx series). While it is closely related to 5456 Aluminum Alloy (Aluminum Association) designations that only differ in the second digit are variations on the same alloy), it is used in structural applications, like most other aluminum-magnesium alloys, and not as filler for welding. As a wrought alloy, it can be formed by rolling, extrusion, and forging (although forging is not common), but not casting. It can be cold worked to produce tempers with a higher strength but a lower ductility. It is susceptible to exfoliation corrosion when held at temperatures above 65 °C (150 °F) for extended periods of time.

    Carbon Steel is a steel with carbon content up to 2.1% by weight. The definition of carbon steel from the American Iron & Steel Institute (AISI) states:

    Steel is considered to be carbon steel when:

    No minimum content is specified or required for chromium, cobalt, molybdenum, nickel, niobium, titanium, tungsten, vanadium or zirconium, or any other element to be added to obtain a desired alloying effect;

    The specified minimum for copper does not exceed 0.40 percent;

    Or the maximum content specified for any of the following elements does not exceed the percentages noted: manganese 1.65, silicon 0.60, copper 0.60.

    The term "carbon steel" may also be used in reference to steel which is not stainless steel; in this use carbon steel may include alloy steels.

    As the carbon percentage content rises, steel has the ability to become harder and stronger through heat treating; however, it becomes less ductile. Regardless of the heat treatment, a higher carbon content reduces weldability. In carbon steels, the higher carbon content lowers the melting point.

    6061 and 6063 are the two most popular extrusion alloys. 6063 aluminum occupies the number one spot and 6061 occupies spot number two. As alloys in the 6000 series, they both have magnesium and silicon as their primary alloying elements. Thus, they have many similar properties. 6061 offers higher strength, however. As such, it is often used for more structural applications. 6063, on the other hand, is used for applications such as railing or trim, windows, and doors where strength is less of a factor in the decision-making process. 6061 Strength is Medium to High, good corrosive resistance, weldability, workability & machinability is also considered good. T6 is Solution heat-treated and artificially aged. T451 is solution heat-treated, stress relieved, then naturally aged. T651 is solution heat-treated, stress relieved by stretching and then naturally aged. T6511 is solution heat-treated, stress relieved by stretching and then artificially aged with minor straightening.
